Dick Cheney- Corporate Criminal


Democratic congressional candidate lashes out at Cheney

OWENSBORO, Ky. Vice President Dick Cheney arrived in Owensboro this afternoon for a fundraiser for Republican Congressman Ron Lewis.

The Vice President's visit sparked a Democratic congressional candidate to go on the offensive against Cheney.

Democrat Mike Weaver says Cheney has some explaining to do. Weaver told a group of supporters today that Cheney should reveal the results of his secret energy task force that met a few years ago. Weaver says that since the task force met, the price of gasoline has skyrocketed.

Weaver -- a Vietnam veteran -- also says Cheney should say what he intends to do about profiteering during war. Weaver noted that Cheney is the former C-E-O of Halliburton, which Weaver says has reaped huge profits during the Iraq War.

Weaver spoke at a riverfront park shortly before Lewis had his own event a short distance away.

Later this evening, Cheney will attend a private fundraiser for Lewis, who was first elected in 1994 during a special election. Lewis hasn't faced any serious opposition in a decade.
